I am contemplating the most efficient ways to fix problems either mid operations or after completion. A common occurrence in almost all of my builds. It is taking hours to edit tool paths on large projects with all the rest chains, it gets very time consuming up to half a day to make any adjustments.
Was hoping I could start a discussion to get some advice or tips.
Simulate and save file at point of repair needed, use new setup, enable rest machining and load from file.
Repair model in design, ignore outdated tool paths in manufacture and use rest machining from last operation even though it is outdated leaving a mess with your tool paths.
Copy part and paste, make repair with design, make new setup in manufacture with new part only recognized.
Do not use rest machining, set depth to level of repair needed let tool paths think you are going deeper then you really are.
After completion rebuild entire tool path structure for next run.
Could someone help me with any tips on how to relocate stock accurately for precise machining? My best efforts at precision re calibrating with the touch probe after re homing are always off. If I do not keep it on the same homing operation in the same location I can forget about any matching edges.
